The famous JRPG title Ni No Kuni is getting its own anime movie however at this point, only a Japanese release is confirmed for this summer.
The animated movie is being developed by Level-5 and it is being directed by Yoshiyuki Momose. He has worked on both Ni No Kuni titles and has some shorts and commercials under his belt for Studio Ghibli as well.
Another famous name working on the Ni No Kuni movie is Joe Hisaishi who is the composer in movies such as Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. The movie script is being written by Akihiro Hino who will also be the executive producer of the movie. He is also the CEO of Level-5.
The movie will be featured on a boy named Yu who is voiced by Kento Yamazaki who fans of Death Note will immediately recognize as the voice behind L. The movie is set in the Ni No Kuni world and Yu will travel to the world from a real-world with his friend Kotona.
Ni No Kuni is a JRPG franchise by Bandai Namco. The first title was released back in 2010 and the second title came out in 2018. The first title in the franchise is a very cute game in which you play as Oliver who is on a journey to save his mother.
The second title in the franchise is a direct sequel to the first title however players jump in the shoes of Evan who must reclaim his kingdom and build it back to its formal glory. It brought a lot of major improvements over the first title to the table and it was much better than the first title.
At this point, this movie is only scheduled to release in Japan and there is no word on a release outside. However, we are hoping that an English version will be released for the world as well because the game has a wide fanbase all around the world.
